Autism Causes

The difference in "life " and "quality of life".

autismAutism Causes

Dietrich Klinghardt, M. D., PhD, chronic illness doctor and leading authority on chronic infections treatment, referred to by many as a medical genius, has successfully treated many children on the autism spectrum. His approach focuses on detoxification of neurotoxins, mercury and heavy metals, mold, and other environmental toxins.
Mercury corrupts the body both physically and functionally. If mercury impacts the physical body so strongly, why don't all kids exposed to mercury become autistic? He concurs that poor methylation and other impaired detoxification pathways in the physical body are important.

Electromagnetic Fields and Radiation

Not only do electric and magnetic fields disturb normal neurological development, but studies in Europe clearly demonstrate molds increase their outpouring of bio-toxins over 600 times in the presence of ambient electro-smog. Another study in 2007 suggested that wireless technologies could make it more difficult for autistic children to excrete heavy metals, such as mercury. Andrew Goldsworthy also hypothesizes that microwaves can interrupt the pruning process in neuron connections, and thereby contribute to autism.

The scientific community still debates the cause of autism, but a study conducted by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt on autistic children and their mothers during pregnancy, show significant results, strongly suggesting that "electromagnetic radiation in the sleeping environment of the mothers during pregnancy, as well as electromagnetic radiation in the sleeping environment of children may be key undiscovered contributing if not causative factors in neurological impairments in children, including autism..."

Other environmental sources also interfere with and impede the electromagnetic body. Natural doctors and practitioners using energy medicine often recommend removing or moving away from potentially harmful environmental electromagnetic fields, such as wall sockets, televisions, computers, cell phones and their towers, and other invisible energy sources.


Many people believe that autism is the consequence of an infection acquired in the womb. Many metabolic, anatomical and immunologic markers suggest a viral infection. Dr. Klinghardt reported that 72% of the children he sees with neuro-developmental disorders test positively (Western Blot) for Lyme Borreliosis (after antimicrobial provocation). 84% of their mothers test positively when provoked with antimicrobials prior to blood draw. Six out of 6 of his autistic children tested positively for the Borna virus (This virus is transmitted from horses, dogs and cats and causes autism-like neurological problems in horses and mental illness in adult humans. Children have not been studied).Microbes create biotoxins with effects similar tomercury, lead and carbon based chemicals.


The synergistic effect between toxins has only been poorly studied, said Dr. Klinghardt. An LD 1 of lead (one out of hundred rats dies) and LD1 of mercury given at the same time to a rat has an LD100 effect i.e. they all die. There is no computer model that can handle the synergistic effect of hundreds if not thousands of environmental toxins in our children

Autism is a new man made condition –and therefore avoidable in the future. Occurrence and severity of autism is directly related to toxin exposure in a child with inadequate genes (those that code fordetoxification enzymes, methylation, etc.) Autism is not multifactorial: CNS-mercury plays the key single role in causing autism, most biochemical, developmental, medical and behavioral findings in autism are secondary to mercury toxicity.

A recent quote from Boyd Haley, PhD: "Our latest research clearly points to the ethylmercury exposure as being causal in autism. The tremendous enhancement of thimerosal toxicity by testosterone and the reduction of toxicity by estrogen explains the fact that 4 boys to 1 girl getting the disease and the fact that the bulk of severe autistics are boys. Most importantly, this autistic situation clearly shows that exposure to levels of mercury that many "experts" considered safe was capable of causing an epidemic of a neurological disease".
